Wine, how it’s made
Wine is actually grape juice that has been yeasted. This is the only similarity between all types of wine in the world. The basis of every wine is the grape. However, every grape has its own climate preference, need for different types of soil and even have different times to be harvested.
Four things are needed to produce wine; soil, sun, grapes and vinification (the process of wine making). The quality of the ground is of the utmost importance for the success of wine, however, not in a way that is expected. The best soil for wine to thrive in is a dry soil. The sun is the most unpredictable out of the four factors. Every year it remains to be seen how much sun will shine. To little sunshine or too much sunshine, either way could be disastrous for the growth of the grape.
The sun ensures that the sugar in the grape is developed properly. A little bit of rain is not harmful. However, when the weather is very wet and damp, it is possible that the development of plant diseases can ruin the grapes. On the other hand if the sun shines to bright, it could singe and burn the grapes with the result that the flavour of a wine would sour.
